Bernd Leno looking towards Arsenal, Atletico Madrid

German international goalkeeper Bernd Leno is edging closer to Bayer Leverkusen departure.

The Bundesliga outfit have agreed a deal to sign Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt, which goes on to suggest that Leno could be on his way out of the club this summer.

The 26-year-old custodian has been negotiating a move to Napoli but with talks currently dead in the water Leno is looking for another high-profile club and is reportedly setting his sights on Arsenal and Atletico Madrid, according to Kicker.

Leno is under contract with Bayer Leverkusen until 2020 but it is believed that a fee worth €25 million would be enough to secure his signature.

Arsenal have been in pursuit of a goalkeeper for quite some time now as Gunners keep chasing a replacement for Petr Cech, whereas Atletico Madrid need to find a back-up for in-demand Slovenia shot stopper Jan Oblak.

Newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers are also said to be keen on the German goalkeeper but Leno is reportedly looking for a more attractive destination.
